InfluenzaNet is a system to monitor the activity of influenza-like-illness (ILI) with the aid of volunteers via the internet. It has been operational in The Netherlands and Belgium (since 2003), Portugal (since 2005) and Italy (since 2008), and the current objective is to implement InfluenzaNet in more European countries.

In contrast with the traditional system of sentinel networks of mainly primary care physicians coordinated by the European Influenza Surveillance Scheme (EISS), InfluenzaNet obtains its data directly from the population. This creates a fast and flexible monitoring system whose uniformity allows for direct comparison of ILI rates between countries.

Any resident of a country where InfluenzaNet is implemented can participate by completing an online application form, which contains various medical, geographic and behavioural questions. Participants are reminded weekly to report any symptoms they have experienced since their last visit. The incidence of ILI is determined on the basis of a uniform case definition.

Über Uns

Grippenet.ch ist eine Online-Befragung der Schweizer Öffentlichkeit zur Meldung grippeähnlicher Symptome während der Wintermonate. Grippenet, betrieben von Forschern der ETHZ und Université de Genève, ist Teil einer europäischen Initiative für wissenschaftliche Bürgerbeteiligung zur Beobachtung Influenza-artiger Krankheiten, um deren Ausbreitung besser zu verstehen und zu modellieren. Wir hoffen, dass so viele Menschen wie möglich an der Befragung teilnehmen, um unseren Interpretationen mehr Aussagekraft zu verleihen. Informiere deine Freunde und Familie!
